SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Museum and Library Services Act of 1996 (the “Act”), set forth at 20 U.S.C. 9101 et seq., expanded the functions of the existing Institute of Museum Services to create the Institute of Museum and Library Services. IMLS published a final rule changing the name of the agency's chapter in the Code of Federal Regulation (Dec. 19, 1997, 62 FR 66529). This rule further updates our regulations by eliminating all references to the Institute of Museum Services and replacing those references with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services considers this rule to be a technical amendment that is exempt from notice-and-comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A). This rule is not a significant rule for purposes of Executive Order 12866 and has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the Institute certifies that these regulatory amendments will not have a significant impact on small business entities.
